Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are seeing higher preorders then X and Y

Pokemon X and Y has changed Pokemon in a big way, it has taken the basic formula evolved through the ages and changed it in a big way with several new ideas that have improved the franchise and graphically Pokemon has never looked better thanks to X and Y. Interestingly though the changes and improvements implemented in Pokemon X and Y still didn’t interest fans as much as apparently a good remake has already done better then the series last entry seeing preorders then the last games. This information comes straight from Nintendo UK, who spoke with MCV in the magazines latest issue:

“Pre-orders for Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire are doing really well at the moment. It is pre-ordering more than X and Y, so we are quite optimistic about that one.”

UK general manager Simon Kimp also chimed in about the topic stating “And that is a pattern we are seeing globally.

Later in MCV’s interview, Peace commented on Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire’s marketing plans. The games are “getting a similar sized campaign to what we did on X and Y.” And while Nintendo UK is planning various TV and online media efforts for its marketing plans, Peace said the special demo will be a “big part of the campaign.”

“That’s a big part of the campaign. We are finding that the demo versions of things are working really well for us. The Super Smash Bros. demo was really popular and converted lots of people to purchase.”

I put my preorder’s in these games month ago but have you, did you preorder the games, which game did you get, let us know in the comments below.
